Fundraiser an evening of fabulous food, fun and style
It's going to be fabulous, fashionable and
fun -- and it's all for a good cause.
The Southland Hospice will benefit from
a unique fashion parade, being organised
and promoted by Southland hairdresser
An annual event for more than two
decades, Ms Howard took it over a few
years ago and is keen to see it go from
strength to strength, with next week's at
the Kelvin Hotel on Friday, September
28. "I've set $10,000 as my goal and I'm
really hoping we can achieve that."
The gala event includes fashion, enter-
tainment, nibbles and a complimentary
drink, and the 120 tickets were selling
fast. "The support has been amazing,
people are really happy to help out with
So why would a local hairdresser get
involved in an event like this? Ms
Howard says cancer has touched her
family in many ways.
"I've lost my mother, my nephew and two
uncles -- so it affects me quite closely.
"But it touches everybody -- it really is a
cause that people feel they can support.
On top of that, she said the Southland
Hospice did some great work in
supporting patients and their families.
Apart from some wonderful fashion from
Liz Thomas, Farrys, Julie Bryce, Annah
S, Labels, Posh, Fredricks Menswear and
Shoe Fetish, goods for auction and raffles
have also been donated, including a Caci
Clinic package, an overnight trip for two
on the Milford Mariner, an All Blacks
T-shirt signed by Ritchie McCaw, art,
venison, paua and lamb.
The opening includes bagpipes and a
performance by the Southland Boys High
School kapa haka group, along with some
rock and roll later in the evening.

A $150,000 extension of the Salvation
Army's Winton Community Centre
is aimed at youth in the town.
Set for completion next year, the
facilities will provide a new area for
children and youth, along with a
double garage and storage facility to
accommodate kayaks, mountain
bikes, wetsuits and lifejackets.
Lieutenant Sarah Healey said the
extra space would allow an expan-
sion of youth activities in the future
but would also mean specialised
equipment could be stored and then
loaned out to local children.
"There're a lot of young families in
our community. For school camps
and other activities, children often
need this sort of equipment, but
don't have access to it. This will
ensure Winton kids don't have to
miss out, or feel that they can't
A fundraising spring fashion show
would be held in the town next
Wednesday from 7.30pm.
Fashion from exclusive Invercargill
designer Warwick Woodfield, along
with clothing from Selecta Fashions,
Merv'n Millies, the Cuckoo's Nest,
Micah Fair Trade clothing, Brent
Scammell Honda and Treatz n
Treasurez will be seen.
Tickets are selling fast and can be
purchased at the Salvation Army
Family Centre for $15.
